In addition to the square patterns this book also contains a small sampling of edgings, embellishments (including ribbons, beads, cross stitch and embroidery), and joins. And there is advice on color choice and instruction in basic techniques.
I just love this book. It's complete enough for a beginner, and inspiring enough for intermediate to advanced stitchers. I can't wait to add it to my library.
There's a Tools and Techniques section where topics like reading patterns and charts, color schemes, planning your projects, blocking and joining, and adding embellishments are discussed.
I like the wide variety of square patterns offered here, it's a nice eclectic mix. The possibilities are endless if you want fun square ideas for your next afghan. The square patterns are fun, colorful and funky.
I worked up the puff stitch heart square and turned it into a potholder. The pattern was very easy to follow and the instructions were clear. This square design would make for a great baby blanket.
I think that 100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet: Dozens of Mix and Match Combos and Fabulous Projects would make a great addition to any crocheters pattern book stash.
This review is my honest opinion. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and designers, such as this one, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
St. Martin's Griffin sent me a free copy of this pattern book in exchange for a possible review.
I'm a relative novice when it comes to crocheting, and I wanted a book that would allow me to make some colorful and interesting granny squares while practicing various stitches and techniques at the same time. This book fits those requirements while also allowing me to indulge my love of bright colors. For those who prefer blocks or squares with more subdued color schemes, the same publishing house has a different book called 150 All-Time Favorite Crochet Blocks.Read more ›
